Rooted (PreK4-8th grade):
Rooted, for children in Grades PreK4-8th, is a parish and parent cooperative program that meets monthly in the St. Agnes Old School. Parents and children attend monthly sessions and then continue the conversation and content at home over the following weeks.
Rooted is not a drop-off program. At the monthly sessions, while the children gather in their classes, parents will gather with the Pastor and the Faith Formation Team. These sessions will spark conversation and provide resources on ways to incorporate the months’ catechetical themes into daily life. It is imperative that parents be present in order to join the discussion and to receive these resources. Rooted will begin on Catechetical Sunday, September 15, and will gather right after the 9am Mass, from 10-11:30am. Please join us for the Catechetical Sunday Mass at 9am, where there will be a special blessing for the parents in our program.
All Rooted sessions will be held in the St. Agnes Old School after the 9am Mass (10-11:30am).
(Please join us for a special blessing at the 9am Catechetical Sunday Mass prior to our session!)

All students desiring to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, First Holy Eucharist, or Confirmation must enroll in Faith Formation for the year prior to the sacramental year as well as the sacramental year itself. During the sacramental year, students must also enroll in one of our Sacramental Preparation Programs. Sacramental Preparation is separate from regular Faith Formation, in accordance with the policies of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Information on our Sacramental Preparation Programs will be advertised in our Parish bulletin, Parish email, and to families enrolled in Rooted.
